We know that the first original smartphone models running the new Ubuntu mobile OS will be coming out this October, and back at the CES we got to check out the software running on a Galaxy Nexus, with the promise that a developer preview of that version would be available sometime this month. Today, Canonical reveals just when you’ll be able to get your hands on it, announcing a release scheduled for February 21.

It’s not just the Galaxy Nexus that will be able to use this early Ubuntu release, but the Nexus 4, as well. This so-called Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview will arrive alongside flashing tools to help interested users install the OS, and for anyone lucky enough to attend the Mobile World Congress, there will be teams on-site ready and willing to flash your phone for you.

Obviously, as a developer preview you probably shouldn’t be planning to jump right in and make Ubuntu your daily driver, but we bet a lot of you are really curious to see just what the platform’s like to use, and will at least be giving this a try once it becomes available.
